Timeless jewel

by Goldrichie on 27 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Well it has probably all been said about this place. It is a true icon and still delivers in spades. Service is impeccable and location cannot be beaten. Wi fi works well everywhere and rooms are tastefully decorated, but the best thing is you know that you are staying in a place that has been a hotel for over 150 years. There is a lack of pretence about this place that is refreshing for a hotel of this stature. Yes it is a splurge hotel but not in a crazy, over the top way. More you will know t...

Loved our room and genteel oasis

by CLPRtravel on 27 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We loved our 2 night stay here to recharge after our long haul flight . It was a real oasis of calm away from the city life.

We returned with the family when back in Colombo to enjoy the lovely evening buffet together. We have very fond memories of our stay here...

We had such a lovely time at this hotel in Colombo, particularly with Asanga the bar man at the pool bar. He was so accommodating and nice. Thanks Asanga and all the pool bar staff at Galle Face Hotel!!!

The walls of the "Travelers Lounge" is filled with photos of those who visited over the Hotel's long and unique history. The hushed book and comfy chair filled library is a welcome harbor and alternative work space (wifi works great there). The museum, including Prince Phillips actual car, is fascinating, coupled wi...

All time classic

by Fitzu17 on 25 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in! The staff are a joy & the rooms are comfortable, with a genuine old world charm. The hotel has its own museum & an Historian who conducts tours. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of Sri Lankan options. The bagpipes & army officer lowering of the flag at sunset (whist enjoying a sundowner) is surely a unique hotel experience. we started & finished our Sri Lankan adventure at the Galle Face & were welcomed back like old friends on our return.
